Whether you are a partner agency or a fair goer, you will learn about the Mental Health and Community Resource fair from information listed below.

  4. Load-In - If load-in assistance was requested a student will be assigned to help you load-in materials. Those assignments happen about 2 days before the event. You will be contacted the day before to confirm load-in assistance. If you are unable to attend that day, for whatever reason, and requested assistance please contact Student Programs at (425)-739-8314.

  5. Table Assignments - tables are assigned based first on electricity needs and second on use of space needs. The planning committee also ensures that similar agencies are not close together.

  6. Audience - we encourage partner agencies to actively interact with our college community. LWTECH has over 30 programs, with a diversity of students. We also have an active and engaged Social and Human Services program. These students are interested in your agency and also have internship requirements to fulfill. They talk with you about such an opportunity. Additionally, some students might have assignments to complete. We ask that you help those students with their extra-credit assignments to further their learning about mental health.

More information about the fair will be posted as the date approaches. We'll see you May 7th!
